That’s great news! Now I can go wild walking to go Wild Climbing, after spending the morning Wild Gardening and visiting the local out door market or ‘Wild Shopping’.

Good effort and I applaud your article! 😂😂

I proposed some time ago dropping the 'r' from 'trad' so we were left with 'Rad' climbing. So yoof don't you think!

Wouldn't dropping the 'r' give us 'Tad' climbing? Mind you, compared to the endless energy of youth, a tad is all I ever get done on a typical day of faffing and finishing early.

Ahh that was the original adjustable-angle training board, loved that one!
